Plant Information

The Spider Plant Lemon, scientifically known as Chlorophytum Comosum, or commonly called a Yellow Spider Plant, is the quintessential low-maintenance houseplant. Its long, pointed leaves are a verdant green with shades of yellow in the middle, and emerge from the center of the plant, creating a uniquely bushy appearance as the plant matures. Healthy spider plants grow runners with smaller, “baby” spider plants attached – you can share this plant with your friends quite easily! The runner vines can grow quite long, making it suitable for hanging baskets or allowing it to cascade gracefully from shelves.  This plant will arrive in a 6" pot.


Spider plant plants generally grow bushy, and the size of the mound increases as they mature. As indoor houseplants, they are quite low maintenance and an excellent candidate for a hanging basket.  


Care and Maintenance


Remember that each plant is unique, so closely monitor your plant and adjust its care based on its response. By providing the right conditions, you'll be rewarded with a stunning and healthy plant that adds a touch of tropical elegance to your indoor space.



Provide bright, indirect light for your spider plant. It can tolerate lower light conditions, but its coloration will be most pronounced and attractive in moderate to bright indirect light. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch the leaves.



Maintain a comfortable room temperature between 65-80°F (18-27°C). Keep it away from cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.



Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out before watering. Water thoroughly when needed, but ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent waterlogged roots.  Spider plants can get quite thirsty during growth periods, so your plant may benefit from more regular watering than most other tropicals.



Use a well-draining potting mix to prevent overwatering. A mix of regular potting soil, perlite, and peat moss or coconut coir works well.  Spider plants, though, are very hardy, and can grow in just about any substrate or medium.



Feed your spider plant with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer); heavier feedings may be necessary during growth periods. Reduce or eliminate fertilization during the fall and winter when growth slows down.



Spider plant can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. However, it may benefit from increased humidity. Misting the plant or using a humidity tray can help.



Trim any yellowing or dead leaves to maintain the plant's appearance and encourage new growth.



Repot your spider plant when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its current container. Repotting is best done in the spring.



Dust can accumulate on the leaves, hindering their ability to absorb light. Wipe the leaves gently with a damp cloth or give the plant a shower occasionally to keep it clean.


Pests and Diseases

Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites, thrips, aphids, and mealybugs. If you spot any pests, take action promptly with appropriate treatments.



To ensure even growth and avoid the plant leaning towards the light source, rotate it every couple of weeks.
